I hear that he's not very rich.
I hear that he's not so rich.

We can't use not so in the sense of not very. The expression He's not so rich implies a comparison: He's not so rich as you are.

Next
The messenger will arrive just now.
The messenger will arrive presently.

If we are speaking of a near and immediate future time, we must use presently, immediately, in a minute, or soon. Just now refers to present past time, and not to future time: He's not at home just now (= at this moment). He left just now (= a little time ago).

Next
His uncle is in London at present.
His uncle is in London presently.

At present and presently are not synonymous. At present means now, but presently means soon: She will come back presently (= soon)

Next
Zoe rarely comes to see me now
Zoe scarcely comes to see me now.

Scarcely isn't synonymous with rarely. Rarely means not often, scarcely means not quite: I had scarcely finished when he came.

Next
He's a much strong man.
He's a very strong man.
He's very stronger than I am.
He's much stronger than I am

Use very with adjectives and adverbs in the positive, and with present participles used as adjectives like interesting. Use much with comparatives.
